    Everyone is getting ready for Christmas!  The local businesses, city workers, and the Chamber are doing a good job of promoting the Holiday.  Churches are having special services and the schools are having programs. Everyone is anticipating Christmas. The building anticipation is a wonderful thing.

    With the warmer than normal temperatures, it doesn’t seem possible that we are in the last month of 2017. And as each year draws to a close the familiar question is heard, “Where did the year go?” But as we all know, time waits for no one and indeed, it is the time of the year when everyone is preparing for “Christmas,” in all sorts of different ways.

    Where do we start our journey?  The only place we can—“In the beginning…God.”

    Forgive – easy word to say – not so easy to do. The word means literally to – let it go. Too often when we do – we pick it up again. Triggers – reminders of why we needed to forgive in the first place.

    We've just come through Halloween season – a shared experience of delighting in costuming and generous gift giving (how cool is it that for this one night we all support the door to door traveling circus of young people and delight in welcoming them with a sweet treat!?).

    I love history! I love reading about people, and places, trying to imagine what life would have been like, felt like, to live during those times. Recently, my wife and I watched a PBS series on the wives of Henry the VIII. What a vastly different world we live in today. In that time what the King wanted trumped all other principles. Henry, it seems wanted a son, and since his wife was unable to bear him one, he wanted a new wife. By today’s standards, we wouldn’t give that much thought, but there was a bigger issue. Henry belonged to the Catholic Church, and they weren’t big on divorce. So Henry did the unthinkable, he broke from the church, and created his own.

    They say you can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy; I would say “they” are right. Having grown up in rural south-central Kansas, this country boy spent the last twenty years in Seattle, Washington. Who the heck am I? Well, let me properly introduce myself. My name is Dr. Howard Law, and I am the new pastor for Zion Countryside Gladstone an

    To the great frustration of the religious leaders of the day, Jesus “welcomed sinners” (Lk. 15:2). Of course, today we don’t use language like that because it smacks of judgment. “Sinners? Gasp! How dare you utter such a condemning word!” But we sure do like the idea of welcome.
    So what does welcome convey–not in the sense we may use it today, but in the way it describes Jesus in Luke 15?

    With the political climate such as it is these days, I often hear folks talking about the separation of church and state.
